Did Someone Say Yearlong Party?

Tricklock Company’s got a lot to celebrate

Tricklock Company’s gearing up to launch their 20th season.

From Budapest to Seattle, Los Angeles to Belgrade, Edinburgh to Vancouver, Canada, Tricklock Company has planted their theatrical seed. More importantly, they’ve been a big player in the Albuquerque scene. As a local nonprofit, Tricklock has not only produced many original plays, talented actors, directors and musical scores, but was the first resident company in UNM’s Department of Theatre and Dance. After 19 years of hard work, the folks at Tricklock have decided it’s time for a well-earned bash. However, unlike some party invitations that say to leave the drama at home, this is one bash where drama is welcome.

Tricklock kicks off its 20th anniversary on Saturday, Aug. 31 with a free performance at the Tricklock Performance Factory (110 Gold SW) that borrows from the company’s past shows. The short performance is an amalgamation of old and new, incorporating performances from current and founding members. Featuring slide shows, memorabilia and intertextual references, Tricklock merrily puns on its own history. A new, original score also accompanies this eclectic blend of multimedia and theater. However, it doesn’t end there. Afterwards, join the crew for toasts and general merriment as they continue the celebration at neighboring ArtBar (119 Gold SW), a bar that donates their profits to the arts.

The bash marks the beginning of a yearlong celebration that debuts Tricklock’s brand-spankin’ new ticket subsidies program. With help from the McCune Charitable Foundation, they will reserve a percentage of seats at every performance for the coming year. These seats will be offered to local non-profit and low-income communities, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Organizations like YDI, Big Brothers Big Sisters and many others can benefit from the reduced ticket prices.

Tricklock’s anniversary will also be followed by a month of solo performances. September will open with Juli Hendren’s Rot (Sept. 5 through 8), followed by Elsa Menéndez’ Cloud Cover, or Conversations with Harry (Sept. 12 through 14) and close with Kevin R. Elder’s Knit (Sept. 19 through 21). Whether you can take advantage of discounted seats, are an aspiring thespian or just wanna party, Tricklock’s bash will be a welcome change to your Saturday night. If you’ve ever spent much time around theater people, you may know how these kinds of celebrations can be almost too good of a time. Happy anniversary, Tricklock!

Tricklock’s Cloud Cover

Last run of shows begins tonight

Elsa Menéndez
Elsa Menéndez

Writer Christie Chisholm reviewed Elsa Menéndez’ one-person performance in this week’s Alibi. Described as “a collection of patches that ultimately—when pieced together—create a remarkable quilt,” Cloud Cover, or Conversations With Harry is a storytelling piece wherein Menéndez entertains patrons with heartfelt anecdotes from her past. All of this takes place in a theater setting that is constructed to feel more like someone’s kitchen. Tonight’s show takes place at The Tricklock Space (1705 Monte Vista) at 8 p.m. Seating is limited, but there are five more performances scheduled through Sunday.

Skeletons in the Trailer

Performer tackles love lost and suicide notes with dark humor

Christina Slyter’s new solo show is about a woman who has become a shut-in, terrified of the outside world, because her husband killed himself—yet it’s full of dark humor. “The show takes place on the night that she wakes up,” Slyter says, “and discovers that there are people in her house. She tries to be a good hostess to them and show them a good time ... “ The audience members are the visitors in her house, and as the woman gets closer to revealing truths, her hostess skills unravel.

Longtime ensemble theater group finds new home

The typical formula for theatergoing is pretty simple in the States: You buy a ticket, are ushered to a seat, eat your Toblerone, watch the show and are ushered out. Aside from clapping, the experience is about as interactive as a game of solitaire.

Talking ’Bout a Revolution

Theater from Albuquerque to Armenia

Winter is cold and dark and sleepy. It turns people into marshmallow-shaped hermits, wrapping and zipping themselves into enough layers to survive brief intervals of the outside world before retreating back into their slightly warmer caves. But for three weeks in January, Revolutions International Theatre Festival brings a load of light and warmth.

A Tale of Betrayal

Tricklock weaves a tangled web

In Traitors, things are not as they seem.

The original script by Tricklock Company member Kristen D. Simpson weaves together the stories of Benedict Arnold, Judas Iscariot and Sen. Joseph McCarthy. On the surface, the play is a reflection on the nature of betrayal, patriotism and forgiveness. But there’s another surprising current that sweeps through the show. Religion is the undertone of the production, and its presence left me more than a little confused.
